Chinese False Spirea ((Purple Candles))

  • Category: Perennial
  • Hardiness Zone:3-8
  • Height:30-36 Inches
  • Spread:24 Inches
  • Bloom Color: Pink/Red
  • Foliage Color: Green

The chinensis species is more sun and drought tolerant than other Astilbes; also the last to bloom. Dense, rich violet, poker-like flowers soften as they age and can reach 36" in height. Bold foliage very similar to A. taquetti 'Superba' in habit and form. These 'Purple Candles' really light up the garden and add drama to the part-shade/shade situation.
